Global Health and Culture Lecture Series

Global Health and Culture Lecture Series 

We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new Global Health and Culture lecture series, which is a collaborative effort between the Department of Anthropology and the School of Public Health.

The intent of the lecture series is to facilitate opportunities for the University of Maryland College Park community from diverse fields, especially undergraduate students, to come together and address some of society’s most pressing problems in the field of global health. Furthermore, the lecture series creates an important collaborative partnership between the Anthropology Department, the College of Behavioral & Social Sciences and the School of Public Health, and promotes interdisciplinary engagements focusing on the social context of health. 

The inaugural speaker for the lecture series was Jason Beaubien, NPR’s chief global health and development correspondent. His talk, titled “Emerging Global Health Threats in a Globalized World,” was held in April of 2016.
